Umbraco 7.2 released

It is with incredible enthusiasm and unseen amounts of jazz that we announce the immediate availability of Umbraco 7.2.

TL;DR: We’ve just released the best version of Umbraco ever. Drop whatever you’re doing and start playing with it.

A child of a responsive era

Umbraco 7.2 is the result of a massive team work in the community, taking our collective knowledge on building thousands of responsive websites to make Umbraco the best authoring tool for editors in a responsive era by introducing the “Grid Layout” and “Responsive Preview”.

Grid Layout - Responsive editing for everyone

For years Rich Text Editors (RTE) have been an essential part in editing content, but modern sites that targets multiple platforms needs better - and more semantic - markup than a RTE can deliver. With the “Grid Layout” editor in 7.2 we want to change how content is managed on modern websites.

Designed and engineered to deliver maximum flexibility for editors, yet deliver high quality semantic markup for CSS grid systems, Umbraco 7.2 has become the best CMS when it comes to building and managing responsive websites. With the simplicity and flexibility that you already love today.

Responsive Preview - stop guessing what your content will look like

Complementing the Grid Layout, we’re introducing Responsive Preview in the latest release making it possible to preview your site as it would look across devices such as phones, tablets, desktops or any other type of channel you can imagine.

Lots more

In addition to these great authoring improvements, Umbraco 7.2 also includes improvements to Listviews, the developer experience such as the introduction of Document Type Compositions and a Query Builder, lots of polish and stability improvements, performance enhancements, and bug fixes.

Rock solid

Despite all these improvements, Umbraco 7.2 is our most thoroughly tested version ever. From usability testing to release testing through an alpha, two betas and a release candidate more than 1.000 people have helped putting this release through the paces.

Umbraco 7.2 is our best release ever and I’d like to thank everyone who helped making this possible - from my fantastic colleagues, to our incredible community and the wonderful Gold partners who make it possible to keep adding more resources to the core.
